Modern Library's 100 Best Novels in English. And a readers' vote.
Realtime comments disabled
Listed by Readers, not the Board: French Lieutenant's Woman, Wise Blood, Blood Meridian, Suttree
One can find fault with the Reader's List... OR discover the masterpieces not on the Board's List.
Rand belongs in this company. Both Fountainhead & Atlas Shrugged appear in Radcliffe's rival list.
Do people hate Ayn Rand because they've actually read her books or because South Park told them to
4,5,6 on the readers list would all be on my list otherwise im closer to the critics
To be honest I've never heard of "Darkness at Noon" - which I'll remedy this week.
I've seen this list before. The readers' list is garbage, other than 4-6.
The "Readers" top 10 includes 7 of 10 voted for, without doubt, out of ideology. 3 as works of art.
Proof! Ayn Rand fans: the only people crazier than scientologists.
I've also heard that the Board's List used questionable methodology for # ranking according to someone who was polled.
My guess is the Reader's List poll was taken at a scientology convention.
Saw this a month ago at ML's site. "Reader's" list had vote stuffing - vote once per 24hrs.
Just ignore 1-3 and 7-10.
Love the board's list.
@CohanLaw "Cartoon" fans are *not* morons (presuming you were referencing LoRings). @ebertchicago
Rand is surely one of the worst authors of the 20th Century, and Hubbard is not far behind her.
Yikes. But I have to say I'm impressed and surprised Twilight isn't on the Reader's List.
Who are these "readers"? And why do they love Ayn Rand and L. Ron Hubbard so damn much?
The Scientologists and the Cartoon Fans are out.. we are surrounded by morons.
Incidentally, they did it for fun - don't take the Reader's top10 seriously at all.
The "Readers" in question are certain denizens of the internet's depths. They manipulated the poll
